Long Way Home
Pete and Michelle Sweetser are friends
whom I have met through the Camel Trophy Mailing List.
Pete, from Manchester England, and Michelle, originally
from Chicago, Ill, decided to drive from England to
Michelle's home in Chicago acrss the Asian continent.
Their vehicle for the trip was an ex-Camel Trophy
Defender 110 support vehicle from the 1993 Camel Trophy
event in Sabah-Malaysia.
Along with a 1997ex-Camel Discovery, they
left London and traveled overland through Morrocco,
Eastern Europe, Turkey, India, Tibet, China and southeast
Asia. Their 110 was then shipped to the United States
where they finished their trip. We were lucky enough
to have these great people stay with us in Colorado
and share some of their stories from the road.
